Dragonflies home visit

We had the home visit today from Dragonflies. It gave Em's key worker and the head Dragonfly a good chance to get to know Em, as well as let Sue and I know more information about the forthcoming year.

We were left with a couple of pamphlets to review, as well as a couple of forms that need filling out.

Em starts on 20th September for a 30 minute induction. The next day she'll do an hour. If all is well from that point, she'll do the full morning from the 22nd.

The one thing I was worried about was her toilet training status. Thankfully, with Dragonflies it's ok if Em still has no control. We just have to send along nappies, wipes and emergency clothing. I'd like to think that going to the loo with other children who are actually USING the loo might spur Em on to want to do similar, but in the back of my mind I just envision Em as a middle aged woman who NEVER learnt to go to the toilet. Probably a horrid flight of fancy, rather than a realistic scenario.

The Dragonfliers also asked about various likes and dislikes that Emily has - food, activities, noises, etc.

All in all, it was quite productive and not at all the horrible experience I kinda envisioned a few days ago.

Now, we just wait for Em's first day as a big girl at big girl school.
